Turmeric Buttermilk

Curd rice is a staple food for most South Indians especially Tamil Brahmins. When affected with a severe cold or Chest Congestion intake of curd is generally avoided. For those who find it difficult to keep away from curd diluted and churned buttermilk can be heated with turmeric powder and then consumed mixed with rice. Turmeric helps in relieving the cold and congestion.

Ingredients:

Turmeric – 1/2 tsp
Curd – 1.2 cup
Water – 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Powdered Pepper – 1/4 tsp Optional

Method:

Mix curd & water and churn well to make a smooth liquid.
Add all other ingredients and mix well. Pour into a kadai and heat it on low flame but ensure it does not boil too much since the curd will disintegrate.
Alternatively you can boil the turmeric powder and water for 30 seconds and then lower heat fully and mix churned buttermilk and switch off the stove after a few seconds.

A few curry leaves can be added for added flavor.
